What’s Up with the new Toyota Sequoia?

October 7th, 2021 by

When it comes to receiving gifts, it’s best not to look a gift horse in the mouth. Now, I’m not sure where that popular phrase came from (did horses actually carry gifts at one point?), but it does raise a good point. Sometimes you should just be happy with what you have and/or what you’ve received so far. However, in the automotive game, that saying doesn’t apply. The 2022 Toyota Tundra finally found its way onto the headlines of our hearts and the news left us star-struck. It’s engineered differently, looks all-new, and is packing some sweet new tech that’ll take it up many notches.

While we’re over the moon with this news, we can’t help but think of the Tundra’s beefy sibling and why it hasn’t received much recent news. Yes, we’re talking about the new Toyota Sequoia today and speculation surrounding its return and long overdue evolution. While this is all just speculation, it’s still immensely fun to gossip and wonder. Follow along with us at Toyota of North Charlotte right here!

Big Changes for the Big New Toyota Sequoia?

With all the headlines targeted on the Tundra currently, there’s not been even a peep about the Clermont new Toyota Sequoia. There hasn’t been any word of retirement and we’ve already lost the Land Cruiser, Yaris, and possibly the C-HR. While there were never any formal announcements discussing the shelving of these models, automotive journalists have done a great job of mining through industry reports to determine which ones will be getting cut. The Sequoia has never been mentioned in these lists.

Essentially the North Charlotte new Toyota Sequoia is wrapped in a bit of mystery. It’s also a bit of an odd one when it comes to the Toyota lineup. It occupies a space between the 4Runner and the Tundra that, for some, maybe shouldn’t even exist. With the power of a full-sized pickup at its back and a huge amount of spacing in the interior, the Sequoia is more of a clunky SUV that most would agree is too less on the fuel efficiency and too heavy on the, well, spacing. It doesn’t work practically as a family mover and as an off-roader it’s a tank on the trails without all the customization factor of the Tundra.

While the North Charlotte new Toyota SUV might occupy an odd spot and doesn’t work too well in its segments, there’s still a wide world of possibilities to be had.

Will a New Toyota Sequoia be Coming to North Charlotte?

When it comes to the Sequoia, there are many theories regarding its loadout, engineering, and aesthetics. More than likely we’ll see the Tundra’s twin-turbo V6 come to the Sequoia along with the hybrid drivetrain. There’s also a high probability that the design choices of the Tundra will be translated over along with many of the technological choices. Plan to see the new infotainment system come to the Sequoia along with many of the edgy, futuristic, and rugged qualities of the Tundra.
